Schoolhouse Rock vol. 61

It is Thanksgiving week in kindergarten.  (well, and in life).   Today we did some Thanksgiving writing:

Save a turkey!  Eat more _________.   My top two responses were: “Save a turkey, eat more sushi” and “Save a turkey, eat more zebra.”  pardon???

At the writing center they are making books where they write their friends’ names after the prompt, I am thankful for… I overheard a student pull out a name and say, “Yes!  I am thankful for E**** because his name is short!”

After I read them a turkey recipe from, they also shared with me how to cook a turkey.  I hope that you find some of these tips helpful in cooking up your own Thanksgiving dinner.

You put him the oven and then you.. wait, don’t you kill it before you cook it?  And then you make him….  Then you kill him and then you…  This question’s hard!

You pull the feather.  Put it in the microwave for 16 hours.  Put it in the oven and eat it!

You take the leaves off.  Then you put salt on it.  Then you rub the turkey.  Then put the turkey in the oven for 30 minutes.  Then next you in the morning you put it in the oven.  You leave it there for 35 minutes.  Then you cut carrots and you put one big leaf under the turkey.

You get the turkey from the store.  Then you cook it in your house or at someone else’s house.  You cook it in the oven in a pot.  The oven is 50 degrees.  You cook it for 63 hours.

You go to the farm and get the turkey.  You cook it in a pot for 103 hours. Put water on it.

You keep it in the microwave for 20 seconds and you put the water on there for 9 seconds.  You put it in a big pan and you scrub the pointy sides off with a knife or something.  Then you bake the sides in a little pot.  You put it in the oven for 30 minutes.

You get the turkey from the farmer.  You hide it.  Show it to your mom.  Don’t cook it, because the turkey don’t want to die.
